Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The contact owns a 2006 Volvo V70. The contact stated that the transmission failed. The gears were not shifting properly whenever the vehicle was in a lower gear. The failure caused the vehicle to jerk when the contact tried to accelerate. The dealer stated that it was a software issue, but that did not fix the failure. The dealer also stated that the vehicle needed a new transmission, because they feel that the solenoids on the transmission were defective.
